REF Assurance Statement
The editors of BJPIR would draw authors attention to the fact that anything available on Early View before the 31st December 2013 is eligible for inclusion in REF2014.
In this regard, the editors would indicate that they would strongly expect that authors who have had their articles accepted, have signed and returned ELF forms, as well as having returned corrected PDF proofs and addressed any specific queries that may have been raised during the preparation of their proof, before the end of October 2013, to have their articles accessible on Early View by 31st December 2013, and that these publications would therefore be eligible for inclusion in REF 2014.
